It's pretty wet outside

There's a very large thunderstorm going on right now — hail and everything. There are leaves swirling in the air, presumably just having been torn off of trees by the wind, and rain is moving in horizontal sheets. I'm not relishing the trip home, not having a boat. I give you Lake Steeles Ave.:

Lake Steeles Ave.

Update: 4:58pm — we just had, of all things, a fire alarm, which meant an opportunity go outside and stand around in the storm and watch for the anticipated tornados. Many people decided to go home, only to find their cars unreachable with the water level up to their windows.

Off to catch a bus.
